I screwed up

I used. I feel terrible. I don't even know why I did it. It was only half of a 30 but I still feel like a bad person. I was doing so well

I'm going through the same frustration today. So sorry. This sucks but can only get better.

You need to keep trying, learn from the experience and move on.
And I dont know what the future is holding in store
I dont know where Im going, Im not sure where I've been
There's a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me
My life is worth the living, I dont need to see the end.

John Denver

I know that feeling, but get straight back to it. Just a slip, don't make it anything bigger. You can do this x

It takes practice to learn a completely new habit. You can start again, and again, and again, until you get the results you really want. You're bummed out you used, that's a good sign you're on the right track.

@30s... I think most of us here have been there... I know I have... at least a good dozen times... think of it like driving coast to coast... you're probably gonna make a few wrong turns here and there, but as long as you reach your destination you're golden.

Cut yourself some slack, and don't fixx just for today.

Your a good person with a disease that makes you think you have control. I have done the relapse time and time again, before I full accepted the fact that I cant have that first sip of the first drink. And got full involved in my AA program.

You can do it, what ever path you chose with a program or not. Just dont drink even if your asssss fallls off.

Hang in there.

I know how you feel. I drink and have panic disorder; so when panic hits, it is so hard not to grab a beer. It will get better!

Many of us faltered 30s...don't dwell...get rid of anything else you have, think about what else you need to add to what you've been doing....and move on
